I’ve been thinking recently about how, behind each of us, there are people who have helped shape the way we see the world.
If you’re like me, some of your mentors are close by, and some have been gone for years, but still teach you through the words they left behind.
Tim Keller had a profound impact on me, first through the words of his sermons, then through his writings, and for the past five years, through his teaching.
Here is an article I wrote for Mere Orthodoxy about how Tim’s words—recorded, written, and in-person—have helped shape my faith.
Losing Dr. Tim also reminds me how important it is that we gain all the wisdom we can from our mentors, and take time to thank them when we can, too.
So, if you are able, thank yours today.
